Rule #9 / Bio

Rule #9 is a DIY Pop-punk, Post Hardcore, Rock band from Charleston, SC that likes to blur the lines of the rock scene. Playing together since 2006 Rule #9 was formed in 2010 and is the brain child of founding members; Kyle Porter, Kevin Porter & Robbie Drawdy. The band mixes pop-punk with harmonic solos, sing along lyrics and hardcore breakdowns. Rule #9 brings their music to the masses with performances full of passion and a unique sound that will leave a lasting impression on the rock scene. In November 2011 Rule #9 released their first EP, "Just The Tip..." with Subliminal Sound Studios in Goose Creek, SC which include the local hit “My Favorite Shade Of Red”.

In September 2012 the group began recording their second EP entitled "Expedition For Excellence" which was a DIY record, recorded, mixed and mastered, all in a friends garage. The EP was released in December of 2012. In the midst of the recording process, the band received another incredible opportunity when they were asked to open the breakout band Dead Sara at The Music Farm, their single “Aurora” was also played on a local radio show. In 2013 after 3 years of hard work on the local circuit, Rule #9 won a battle of bands which featured some of Charleston’s best local bands.
